Making Faces

Trees and flowers, and abstract paintings.  Really abstract.  That’s what I had been doing.  But now that I feel comfortable with making faces, I can’t stop.  For this spring’s “Be Squared” challenge show at The Fourth Wall Gallery in Lewiston, I decided to do all faces.  Here they all are.




New directions

muse finalIn January of this year, I became officially involved in the Intentional Creativity movement (see as a Teacher-in-Training. I have already had many amazing experiences, made deep connections with several others, and painted in ways I never imagined myself painting. This is a painting I worked on during the in-person workshop in California in March; she is my muse.

Forgive the angles; photos taken while on wall or easel.  Above is the final version and below is where she was at the end of the time in March before I had to leave her behind to be mailed home to me.   That was harder than I had imagined it would be.
